An explosion struck a gas station in the Syrian capital Damascus early on Friday, January 4, killing at least 10 people in the second attack in three days on people lining up for scarce fuel, The New York Times reported. A bomb struck the gas station in the northeastern Damascus neighborhood of Barzeh, killing and wounding many people, the government news agency SANA reported, blaming terrorists, its shorthand for its opponents. There was no immediate claim of responsibility and it was unclear who was behind the bombing. On Wednesday, an explosion at a gas station in the Damascus suburb of Mleiha killed at least 30 people. Opposition activists blamed the government for the explosion. Pro-government forces have bombed other civilian targets, including bakeries in Aleppo and Idlib provinces, in recent months.
